Chicken chains are gearing up for a fight in Minneapolis/St. Paul, where Popeyes has taken over 12 former KFC units and aims to open 18 more stores, Chick-fil-A plans to open three new stores this year, and hometown player Buffalo Wild Wings expects to expand its 23-unit presence. The growth mirrors a nationwide trend toward eating more chicken, both the healthy grilled variety and the more indulgent deep-fried version, experts say.
